Welcome to Forward Thinking Birmingham

The city's mental health partnership, for 0-25 year olds.

Working together for you

Working together for you

Our new, modern mental health service offers support, care and treatment for all 0-25s through one organisation, making it easier for you to access the right support at the right time.

We're a partnership of organisations that have come together to support children, young people and families in Birmingham. We also work with a number of organisations in the voluntary and community sector.

More about us

Peer Support Worker Initiative

Peer Support Worker Initiative

Our Peer Support Workers are from the same communities and backgrounds of the people they will support. 

Crucially they will all have their own lived experiences of mental illness, therefore, not only will they be able to help young people with their medical recovery, they will aid them with their personal recovery too.
